  • Description

    Description

    Our family has just moved into the oldest, biggest townhouse in a beautiful Spanish village. And we need help! This funky little village is equidistant between the two great main tourist towns of Denia and Javea. We want you to have a fantastic time both with us and while making friends in the community.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are fully integrated in this fantastic village so we can introduce you to the locals where you can practice your Spanish. And you can practice your English with us at home. We also speak fluent Spanish & Dutch. We live in the pretty church square in the Casa del Senyoret which is steeped in history. We have a welcoming, busy house and we are relaxed and hectic at the same time. The village is tranquil but our house can be busy as we have lots of friends.

    Help

    Painting walls, painting furniture, sanding & varnishing, removing old tiles, scraping walls. No experience required.

    General DIY and woodwork skills would be an added bonus.

    We also need an artist or interior design student who could help us restore stencilled and painted patterned walls. This could be a beautiful project for your portfolio. Or just for fun if you love being creative. This side of the work needs some knowledge.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You will have your own room. (Shared if you are with a friend/partner). It’s spacious but it’s old. You will share our family bathroom. We are currently fitting a bathroom on the floor where you will sleep. (Its a HUGE house). The fridge and cupboards are always stocked with food and breakfast and lunch are self service. However, we try to eat together as a family in the evening. In Spain we eat late and because we are busy we don’t have a set schedule. But, you are ALWAYS welcome to join us and our banter at the table. And you will NEVER be hungry in our home. We love food!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It would be best if you had your own car to enjoy the stunning local beaches and glorious mountains and scenery. However, There is public transport from the village. Close to our front door. We will do our best to drive you places if it works with our schedule. That’s no problem. But, we don’t offer a free taxi service!

    We don’t have strict schedules and we are spontaneous people who keep busy having fun. We love surfing, going to the beach, walking and lots of other activities. We are adventurous BUT we are very hardworking.

    We are currently building a music studio so musicians will really enjoy our house.
